So. This here is my travel blog. If you’re interested, you can keep up with it. If you comment, I’ll know you read it, and will love you all the more. But I love you all anyway. This first post is just me unloading all I’ve done in the last couple days of finals and the first couple of vacation.

It’s been a whirlwind week or two. I wrote one whole paper each of last Friday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. On Saturday I went to my grandmother’s memorial service. Read more about everything at my aunt’s blog. I packed everything up, returned my keys, and came home on Tuesday evening (that was, what, the 19th). Wednesday morning I had an interview for an internship at a place called the Center for Ecological Technology. Wednesday night I hung out with Daniel and Zack, my best and oldest friends from home. Thursday morning I had an interview for another internship, this one with the Amherst Climate Action Plan. I was offered internships at both places. That made me happy. Thursday afternoon I went to Rao’s, the local coffeeshop, to hang out with Michelle, another of my bestest home friends. While there, I saw other friends: Julia, Charlotte, Spring, Rachel, Guy, Mary, and Zack. Thursday night I saw my friend Kathleen, and we hung out late into the night. I think I went to sleep around 4am or so. Friday I didn’t do much, but went to a party with the rents at our friends’ house, which was nice, but I was exhausted. Yesterday (Saturday the 23rd) Bethany got here in the morning before I really woke up. At 3ish she and the rents went to see Little Miss Sunshine at Amherst Cinema, and at 4:30 I went to see my friend Ella at Rao’s. This week I have watched so many movies: National Treasure, This Film is Not Yet Rated, Love Actually, Snatch, Trading Places, and I Heart Huckabees (those were all in two days). I’ve also acquired electronically Snatch, Little Miss Sunshine, and Jesus is Magic. At 7:30 last night Bethany and I went up to Greenfield, where we contradanced, and at the contra saw a lot of people (notably Ariel and Heather). This morning Bethany left, and now I am faced with my imminent departure, totally unprepared.

So, I’ve got to get all packed and ready in the next day or two. Fun times. You should see my room right now. It’s about half the size of my room at school, with all the stuff from there, plus all the stuff from here at home. And all this has to be winnowed down to two pieces of luggage and one or two carry-ons. Awesome.

Okay, that’s it for now. This post clearly isn’t as interesting as all the others will be. Just wanted to start it off. Hope you all continue to come back.

PS: it’s funny, below the text box that I’m typing in here, there’s a thing that says “Labels for this post: e.g. scooters, vacation, fall”. I just think those are all somewhat relevant to my life recently. And there’s no way blogger could know that stuff. Bizarre.

  1. So glad you are blogging so I don’t have to bother your rents for news! Also discovered you have a green blog, fact I did not know. Since I have a green bed & breakfast, I must say finding my nephew blogging green made my day. I look forward to reading both blogs on a regular basis. Have fun. Be safe. Love you. Auntie Sandy
